Setback for Luke Shaw, Injury snatches Manchester United’s left-back chances for World-Cup

Luke Shaw

The 27-year-old Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw might miss his chances in 2022 England’s World-cup squad. The English club from Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, is the club with a worldwide fan following. The Red Devils have won a record 20 League titles, 12 FA Cups, 5 League Cups, as well as a record 21 FA Community Shields. Manchester United under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson era dominated the English Premier League single-handedly. But, somehow, the Red Devils aren’t much able to show their dominance in recent years. The English giants last won their English Premier Title in the 2012-2013 season. Since the departure of England’s all-time best manager, the trophy room of the Red Devils is also silent for a while.

Manchester United were in 6th position last season. Finishing last of all the big 6 with 33 points behind the champions Manchester City. The arrival of new manager Erik ten Hag, after his successful spell at the Dutch giants Ajax. The Dutchman brought in immediate changes to the squad and had a busy Summer transfer session. But still, the Red Devils under Erik ten Hag were off to a poor start. Losing the opening two matches to Brighton and Brentford. Nonetheless, things were back on track, as the Red Devils went on to win the next 4 fixtures. But like how Manchester United is struggling to keep up their place in the top 4. In the same way, one of the Manchester United player is struggling to get back into his form after his injury.

Injuries steal Luke Shaw’s shot in Manchester United and England squad this year

The 27-years-old Luke Shaw is an English left-back, who is a product of Southampton youth academy. In 2011, he made his senior debut for his youth club and eventually caught the eyes of the Manchester United selectors. Furthermore, on June 2014, Luke Shaw made his arrival at Old Trafford for £30 million. Since then, the Englishman has been a prime option at left-back. Luke Shaw is known for his attacking football, speed, decision-making, technique as well as defending skills.

But the 27-year-old is currently struggling with his form in order to remove bolts from his leg surgery, back in 2015. Shaw suffered a double leg fracture in 2015 while making a tackle against Héctor Moreno. He was out for 6 months. Shaw hasn’t made his appearance in the club since the start of this new campaign and his position is taken by the newly arrived Tyrell Malacia.

Can the English get back in time to make his place fixed in the English squad for the upcoming 2022 World-cup in Qatar?
